Point Dume State Beach
Characterized by an angular cliff on a promontory jutting out in the Pacific, Point Dume is a popular spot for people looking for a less crowded beach experience. If you get there early, you might find a free spot along Westward Beach Road near The Sunset restaurant. There is also paid parking a little past the restaurant nearer to the promontory. Still, check the state government website for updates on parking restrictions. You can relax on the beach or go hiking in the trails above the promontory. Type "rock climbing Point Dume" in your search engine to find some instructors if you like a more active beach adventure. Point Dume is open from sunrise to sunset every day.
